Column Headers

Click on the column heading to sort the list by that column's value.

  • Image. Thumbnail of the template.
  • Template. The name of the template.
  • Version. The version number of the item.
  • Date. The date the item was created by the developer.
  • Author. The developer of the template.

Column Filters

Above the column headers on the right, there are 2 drop-down input fields, Sort Table By: (preset to 'Template ascending') and a number (preset to '20') to display.

These column sorting input fields shows the current method of sorting applied to the table. Use the drop-down field choices and click the column heading name. Alternatively, click on the column heading to sort the list by that column's value.

This will also change the value in the drop field to correspond with the column header name. The list will then be sorted in order by that column and a sort icon (up or down arrow) will show next to the column name. Click a second time to reverse the sort, which will change the corresponding drop field.

  • Order. Order Templates will be displayed in.
  • Ascending Shows ordering of selected column, ascending or descending.
  • # Shows the number of Templates to display on one page. If there are more Templates than this number, you can use the page navigation buttons located at the bottom of the table (Start, Prev, Next, End, and page numbers) to navigate between pages.
